Commercial Buildings Montreal Outreach Session

NRTEE-SDTC report on Energy Efficiency in Commercial Building Sector builds momentum among industry stakeholders eager to learn how to reduce emissions and increase energy efficiency

March 13, 2009 - Commercial Buildings and Energy Efficiency (Montreal)

(Montreal, March 13, 2009) - The National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy together with Sustainable Development Technology Canada presented ?Geared for Change: Energy Efficiency in Canada?s Commercial Building Sector? to a packed audience in Montreal.

The report represents a major step in addressing the realities facing the commercial building sector in Canada as it moves to address challenges like emissions and energy consumption. It presents a viable carbon emission and energy efficiency policy pathway for the commercial building sector.

The event was co-hosted by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC), and brought together 23 major players in the sector (list of participants). Participants heard a first-hand presentation from some of the authors of the report, and then had a chance to ask questions and engage in discussions.

The NRTEE will be presenting the policy recommendations from the report in major centres across Canada over the next few months.

The next session will be held in Vancouver on Thursday, March 26, 2009.
